Limelight Hydrangea

Our most popular question during the summer: “What is that shrub blooming out by the road?” Everyone loves our Limelight Hydrangea shrub. It is big, beautiful and full of blooms. The best part…it requires very little care! Limelights have unique bright chartreuse blooms in mid-summer that hold bright and refreshing color right into autumn when the blooms change color to a rich deep pink. The autumn display of chartreuse and pink blooms on the same plant is breathtaking! The color makes a great addition to the garden and it blends wonderfully with all other colors. Use Limelight, either fresh or dried, in bouquets to make a unique floral design. This is an easy to grow plant with reliable flowering and flower color regardless of soil pH. The flower heads are of good size, ranging from 6 to 12 inches and are held upright on the shrub. The blooms are well distributed making a very nice plant and display.
